About Me

I recently graduated from college and need some fun projects to fill my time! I love books, writing, and typography, and work in a library. Writing letters and stories is the best thing for a blue day, and getting surprises in the mail always cheer people up!

I'm really excited about scrapbooking and smash supplies, random photographs, art, and stationary. I have a soft spot for all pets (I have 2 dogs, a cat, a rat, 2 fish, 3 sheep and 2 llamas at home), drink coffee and tea like no tomorrow, and lately I've been really into apocalypse prepping research.

I can't wait to meet new people and start swapping!

Favorite Music

I love country music and pretty much every country singer, especially Kenny Chesney. I also listen to acoustic rock, some indie and eighties. I'm obsessed with This American Life.

Some of my favorite artists include Lee Brice, the Eli Young Band, Bon Iver, Disney, Dan Fogelberg, Five for Fighting, Fall Out Boy, All American Rejects, and Garth Brooks.

Favorite Books

I don't even know where to start. I love books. All books, pretty much. I'm crazy about fiction, young adult and juvenile literature, memoirs, graphic novels, autobiographical comics, some fantasy, if I'm feeling nostalgic. I don't often read mysteries or westerns, but I'll try anything.

Favorites include: The Time Traveler's Wife, A History of Love, Anita Blake, A Series of Unfortunate Events, anything by Jeffery Brown, and Infinite Jest.

Favorite Movies

I like movies with explosions and kissing. Usually that means action or comedy, but I love a lot of dramas too. Lately I've been enjoying less-straightforward films, like Blue Valentine, Rubber, and Rocket Science. I'm also a sucker for terrible sci-fi movies, having grown up watching them with my dad, and the big name blockbusters, like most people.

Some recent favorites include: Jeff Who Lives at Home, Safety Not Guaranteed, Ruby Sparks, Where the Wild Things Are, 500 Days of Summer, and The Book of Eli.

Favorite Television

Bones, Community, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Supernatural, New Girl, NCIS, Glee, Once Upon a Time, Alphas, How I Met Your Mother, Nip/Tuck, Friends, Desperate Housewives, and Psych. Plus a lot of others I can't think of right now.

Wishlist

I would love to receive anything cute or related to writing, especially kawaii or decorated envelopes, old stamps, patterned notebooks, non-touristy postcards, stickers (no reward or teacher please), and pen-pal supplies. I also just adore surprises so other stuff is also good!

  • I really need BLANK postcards! There's nowhere to buy them in my town, so if anyone wants to destash I'll happily trade for them!
  • Favorite colors: blue purple green and rose
  • Favorite animals: any baby animals, hedgehogs, pandas, dogs and cats
  • Anything kawaii, cute, or silly
  • Used stamps
  • Zines
  • Small press or indie books
  • Comics
  • Photographs of anything
  • Postcards, used or unused, from any source
  • Smash or collage supplies
  • Doodles
  • Stickers
  • Pokemon, Disney, Doctor Who stuff
  • Pretty pencils and blank notebooks
  • Any handmade art
  • Your ACTs
  • Blank ACTs
  • Decorated notebooks or pages
  • Buttons
  • Pretty paper

I'd prefer not to receive:

I love everything sent to me, and if I won't use it, I'll happily find it a better home! But if you want to make sure I'll use it, please don't send me recipes, religious items, FBs, LBs, slams, lotions or other pampering products. Thank you so much!!

Comment: Nice poem. And interesting Christmas decorating. I would never think of a 'pineapple topped pyramid of fruit' being Christmassy. But it works lol!
